My son is 20 months and he is rapidly developing lots of little fears. Did this happen to your LO around 2 years old?

He is currently scared of: balloons, the power drill, gloves, the plastic boot my dad has to wear after having surgery on his ankle, emergency vehicles (the sound of the sirens, not the vehicles), a large plastic shark hanging from the ceiling at the aquarium....probably more that I am forgetting right now. Does this seem normal?

Seems like a lot to be scared of! He is also having a lot of language development going on right now and just became attached to some of his stuffed animals- in case that could be related. Thoughts?
